The latest body to be discovered is 2003 UB313... The one I think you're referring to is a body they found a few years back they named Sedna... There wasn't too much buzz about that "planet/body" because it is smaller than Pluto, so they don't consider it a planet. The problem with this new "body/planet" they have found is that it is larger and farther away from the sun than Pluto. The debate about what exactly is a planet has been renewed because of this discovery. A lot of people don't consider Pluto a planet even though it is historically considered as such... science... gotta love it...
